Question about Akai Televison & Video

1 Answer

Dvd compartment will not open. I removed the back panel of TV to see if I could see what is in there and noticed the dvd compartment is it's own separate compartment. I didn't bother it any further, I replaced the back panel, went to plug in TV and sparks flew. I now have a TV I cannot use till it is repaired. A child was allowed to use my TV while I was away, so I am assuming something was placed in dvd compartment that shouldn't be there. It shows "unknown disc". Apparently something is in there.

Hi guys, or gals,
I took the TV/DVD combo to Radio Shack, the kid there, and I took the entire TV apart, which was what was needed to even get to the DVD compartment, we took the compartment apart and found that a small, rubber washer surrounding two gears, that work the opening and closing of the DVD player had dry rotted and snapped. I left the kid take my TV home to see if he could locate a washer for it. So now you know. Hope this will help y'all in the future. Suggest that people don't buy TV/DVDM Combo's. (-:

if its universal remote (replcement remote) it could just be that it needs code put back so it can communicate with TV. if its the remote that came with TV and has fresh batteries and does not work. I find most of the time its simple as the contacts in the battery area are not making proper connections cause they tend to loosen up over time. you will have to examine the battery compartment by opening up the remote. Remove batteries first and then attempt to open case with small flat head screw driver. Most them just snap together but some times there are screws. Be cautious when you do this not to break the case and remember reverse assembly order. When you get it open look for bent springs or clips in battery compartment.You might have to bend clip or pull spring to tighten up connections. If everything seem normal look for loose wire connection to battery terminals that are loose or not connected. if this is what it is then soldering iron & solder will do the trick. if all fails go to where you bought TV and ask for replacement because if its any thing more serious than battery connection then the remote has to be replaced.

I have a light yellow color in the middle of the screen.

It has something to do with the display. In order to ensure, it is not caused by the input device, connect a DVD player and see. Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

1/8 of an inch blue vertical line from bottom to top about 12 inches up on my Vizio VX42L LCD

Try changing the input device to some other like a DVD player and if you notice same problem, it is better to have the TV checked by a qualified service technician, as back cover has to be opened for investigation.

How do I remove the DVD drive from a Presario 2200 laptop

Download the Service Manual (PDF file form),

1) Remove ALL power.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Lay a towel down on a table to prevent scratching the table, and laptop.
Turn the laptop over so the bottom is facing up, lay it down on the towel.
Position the laptop so the Battery Compartment panel is at the top.

3) The Memory Module Compartment panel is in the middle of the laptop. (Bottom)
It is rectangular in shape, and is above the Mini PCI Compartment panel, which is square in shape.

To the immediate left of the Memory Compartment panel is a rectangular vent, which sits vertically.
In-between the Memory Compartment panel, and this rectangular vent, is a screw hole with a Philips screw.
Remove the screw.

Straighten a paper clip out, then bend one end over to use for a handle.
Along the DVD drive tray there is a small hole. Insert the paper clip into the hole, gently push in.

This is a manual override which will open the DVD drive's tray a little.
Now ease the tray all the way out, then gently pull the optical drive (DVD drive) out of the laptop, using the drive's tray as a handle.

My GPX PD808 Portable DVD Player


The reason the DVD player shows no disc is because the laser?lens is either weak or dirty.

If it is weak, i requires replacement,

to replace it,
get the appropriate screwdriver,
Unscrew the compartment underneath the player,
carefully detach the panel and remove the old lens and replace it with a new one.

Carefully fix the panel back and close the compartment.

Test it with a DVD.

If it is dirty, then all you have to do is to clean it with a DVD lens/laser cleaner.

When I put a dvd in the drive it tells me there is no disk.


The reason the player says 'no disc', is either the fact that the laser/lens is either weak/dirty.

First of all try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner,

if it does the same, try replacing the lens.

To replace the lens,

Unscrew the compartment underneath the player,
carefully detach the panel and remove the old lens and replace it with a new one.

Carefully fix the panel back and close the compartment.

Test it with a DVD.
